Location & Map
Chalet Bear is situated just a 10 minute walk from the start of Chamonix town centre, in a quiet lane with unspoilt views of Mont Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi from the private garden. This luxury chalet is therefore within easy reach of the restaurants and bars, and in a short 20 minute walk you'll be right in the heart of Chamonix. There's a small shopping centre with small supermarket, bakery and pharmacy just 750m from the chalet and the closest large supermarket is only 4 minutes away in the car. There's a local bus stop at the hospital around the corner and the main bus stop at Chamonix Sud is at the end of the main road, 850m away, for access to all of the ski areas of Chamonix valley.

5/5 - "Outstanding"
Superb chalet in quiet location with fantastic amenities, decor and views. British satellite TV channels were a bonus. Chamonix All Year were absolutely brilliant in every regard, from help with the property to booking short notice airport transfers.
This review was originally posted on TripAdvisor - July 2015
From the day we booked with Chamonix All Year Round we knew we were in safe hands. I contacted them on a couple of occasions before arriving and found them very informative. Chalet Union lives up to expectations and looks exactly like it does online, definitely has the wow factor. The Chalet is well equipped, spotless and has everything you need. The rooms were comfortable and two of them offer the best views you could hope for. On a clear day both Mont Blanc and Aiguille du Midi can be seen from the Chalet. I wanted somewhere peaceful but wanted to be based where activities and facilities, shops, bars etc. were within walking distances. I got everything I hoped for. Every bedroom had an en-suite and an extra toilet for good measure. The Chalet would be ideal for several couples wanting to holiday together or large groups of people. The Chamonix All Year Round office is next door to the Chalet so we did not have to go far for information, activity booking and support.

Update from Chamonix All Year: our office has now moved to the centre of Chamonix but our team is still on hand during your stay for information, booking activities and any other support.
4/5 - A lovely new and well decorated chalet with fantastic views of mount blanc thats spacious and comfortable with a great outdoor area especially in the summer time.
5/5 - The Chalet owners have managed to combine an ultra modern Chalet with a plethora of high quality fixtures and fittings which provide overall a very high standard of facilities, with Chalet which has a lovely homely and very welcoming feel. The design and decor of the Chalet is exceptional and there are lovely touches showing attention to detail and which add to the ambience of the Chalet as a whole. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the high quality showers are indeed very welcome at the end of the day.
4/5 - beautiful chalet, the location is perfect, walking distance from downtown Chamonix. superclose to all slopes.
the chalet has everything you need right there: 2 ovens, microwave dryer, washing machine, fireplace, hot tub...
4 rooms allowing many people to stay together like for a family reunion, which we just did and it was great. one of the rooms is downstairs, providing more privacy.
The rental agency is really good, and they helped out with any doubts/questions we had...
If I could give some advice, I would give a better wifi, and a bigger TV, and a bigger dining table:)
I definetely recommend this chalet, as being a great, beautiful runaway from home
CAY response: the wifi is now sorted, and a new larger TV will be installed this summer, as well as a bigger dining table too.
